Starting June 2019, Hotel Villa Roca’s founder and owners Armin and Jörn decided after 20 magnificent years of building one of the best known LGBTIQ hotels in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica and in all of Central America, it was time to retire and let a new generation take care of the hotel.

With this new administration, comes a bright & fruitful future for Villa Roca.  The new owner assures that your LGBTIQ resort on La Roca, with views for miles in every direction; not only continues being one of the best places to stay for the LGBTIQ community, but becomes the (5 Star) worthy resort it deseves to be!

J.M. (Owner, CEO, & CFO) from United States has established himself in Manuel Antonio since May of 2019 and is ecstatic about giving Villa Roca a new face with extravagant amenities, spectacular social events & parties with themes reflecting the new decade ahead, and improvements that will mirror many similar hot spring pools & lagoons found around Costa Rica.  We believe all of the above will have a very positive impact to recurrent and new clients from all over the world.

"Are we dreaming??! ..because this place is heavenly. Villa Roca is situated in the perfect place near Manuel Antonio with an amazing view from wherever you are on their grounds. Our villa had a mesmerizing view which captivated our attention from morning to night. The orchestra of sounds from the beautiful wildlife there was peaceful & perfection to our ears. It felt like time stood still while wasting the day taking it all in. The staff, from Jonanthan, who greeted us with an amazing smile, to the environmental staff that always treated us so well made us all feel welcomed & right at home. ..& can we talk about the pool?? WOW! Speechless.. A must see & experience for all. Costa Rica & especially Villa Roca are highly recommended.. you will definitely fall in love with it.

"Located on a hill, Villa Roca has fantastic wide views overlooking the ocean. Friendly staff and dedicated to give you a nice stay. Many steps to go for some rooms and the pool/bar but if help is requested it will be provided. Our room was clean and spacious with balcony overlooking the forest and ocean. Reality is better than the pictures on the website. Breakfast is served in the poolarea. In general ok. The hotel is near/walking distance nice restaurants, ATM for colon or USD and supermarket. Every day one hour happy hour at the pool bar.." August 2019, Trip Advisor.
